Note: The CrossRoads is a fast yacht, build for speed, ocean sailing and with an incredible sea performance. This is really sailing, not a gourmet cruise with wine and dine and Champaign. That – if you wish - is offered by restaurants and café’s you find on the stop-overs. The crew will be active during the entire trip: night watch, sail trim and sail changes, navigation, routing, meteorology, ship management, cooking, cleaning and above all: maintaining the speed and comfort and having a ball of a time!
